Rangers open preliminary talks with Milad Mohammadi

Rangers saw their new look side run out as 2-0 winners in Steven Gerrard’s first competitive fixture in charge, however, he admitted it could have been better.

The Ibrox outfit will head into their second leg with FK Shukpi with a degree of confidence that they will qualify for the next round of the Europa League.

Gerrard saw a number of his new signings work well together, however, it is understood that his transfer business is not fully completed just yet.

According to a report by Football Insider, the Light Blues have opened preliminary talks about signing Milad Mohammadi from Akmat Grozny after learning of the interest being shown from PSV Eindhoven.

The left-back, who featured in the World Cup for Iran, is set to enter the final year of his contract and Rangers are keen to take full advantage of the situation.

The Ibrox outfit are thought to be in the market for a new left-back and see the 24-year-old as an ideal fit, especially with the versatility he has to offer.

However, it is believed Rangers are prepared to offer just £1.5million for the player, with Akmat wanting a fee in the region of £3m, which could make a deal harder to complete.

The Verdict:

The versatility of Mohammadi could make him an extremely smart signing for Gerrard to make this summer.

With doubts over Lee Wallace’s future at Ibrox, the Iran international could fit in at the left-back position, or could possibly be used as cover in the attacking positions or on the right-hand side of the defence.

Rangers making an early move for the in-demand player makes perfect sense and they will be hoping they can beat their rivals to his signature.
